The film which deals with the day-to-day life of children living on the streets of Bombay (Mumbai) was directed and co-produced by Mira Nair. Shafiq Syed, Hansa Vithal, Chanda Sharma, Raghuvir Yadav, Anita Kanwar and Nana Patekar were lead cast in the movie.

The list is big for achievements of the movie. It won the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi, the National Board of Review Award for Top Foreign Film, the Golden Camera and Audience Awards at the Cannes Film Festival, and three awards at the Montr©al World Film Festival.
